Welcome new member Cairns Regional Council

July 31, 2018

Cairns Regional Council has joined WaterRA!

July 2018 saw our first regional council join WaterRA.  Cairns RC provides water, recycled water and waste water services to the region which has close to a population of 165000.

Rodney Dednam has been appointed as the Member Representative. Claire McInnes recently visited Cairns RC and met with several staff members to discuss research needs and opportunities which includes:

  • Improving sampling and quality of data in remote locations
  • Impact to the Great Barrier Reef
  • Recreational use in catchments
  • Pathogens in warmer climates
  • Trade waste

We look forward to working with Cairns RC in the future to develop collaborative programs, in particular those meeting the unique needs of a northern regional council.
